” Work hard and trust the process. Don’t be afraid to try new things, and believe in your own abilities to excel. It won’t always be an easy ride, but if you cultivate a strong work ethic, it will support your academic, professional, and personal development. “

Career Accomplishments

“Get involved as early as possible, especially if you’re coming from a different country like me (I grew up and graduated from high school in Hong Kong). Your undergrad degree will become more fulfilling, rewarding, and enjoyable the moment you get involved. Because of all these activities, you will meet so many people that you never thought you’d meet in a million years and you will gain lifelong friends, and connections along the way. However, don’t overwhelm yourself with too many activities. Your academics are ALWAYS your first priority. Learn to prioritise your work better, and always make sure you form personal relationships with your professors and peers. You never know when they’ll come in handy – especially if you plan on pursuing further education. Most importantly, have fun! You only have one undergraduate degree, and you’re pursuing it at one of the top institutions IN THE WORLD, so make sure you make the most out of your four (or more) years here!”

Career Accomplishments

New College Impact

New College played an instrumental role in my academic and leadership excellence. Firstly, my New College Registrars immensely supported me through course selection, deciding on my majors, and post-graduation plans. Moreover, the Equity Studies program of New College was the best option as a second major since it gave me a real-world perspective on Economics. Through this course, I was able to identify my interest in public policy and social justice. In my final year, New College awarded me with a scholarship for academic excellence, and also afforded me the opportunity to meet President Meric Gertler at a special New College Dinner.

Furthermore, New College organized various leadership training programs which were very essential to my success as a student leader at U of T. I partook in various floor and house activities that improved my teamwork skills. In my final year, I was given a priceless opportunity to serve as a Residence Peer Mentor where I provided assistance to residents in areas such as Academic Success, Career Preparedness, Mental Health and Wellness. I acquired a lot of great skills and knowledge in this position.

“Balance is extremely important. Get involved in the things you love. Take care of your mental health. Study hard but don’t forget to also learn. And keep God first in all you do.
